Holywell Rural District Council. I Mostyn Housing: Estimated Rent 45.3d. per week. MVNYDD BYCHAN LANE. Petition to Repair. The meeting of the Holywell Rural Coun- cil was held on Friday last, presentMr. It Lloyd Davies (chairman), Mr. Edgar J. Gaskell (vice-chairman), Mrs. Johiiison Jones, Capt. Williams, Messrs. John Rob- erts, J. Petrie, S. Reynolds, T. C. Roberts, S. Williams, E. Matthews, Wilfred A. Ast- buiv, Wm. Roberts, Wni. Evans, Peter Evans, Edw. Evans, Ed. Jones, H. Wil- liams, D. Hughes, with Mr. P. Harding Robert (clerk), Mr. W. H. Roberts (assis- tant clerk), and the Surveyors and Inspec- tors. HOUSING COMMITTEE'S WORK. The report of the proceedings of the Housing Committee held the previous week was read. Closing orders were directed to be issued in respect of houses at Padeswood Lane, Buckley, certified unfit for habitation. Mr. Roberts, the architect, submitted plans of the 22 houses proposed to be built on the Rock Field, Halendy, Moatyn. The estimated rent, it was reported, would be 4t!. 3d. per w-eek per house. The committee recommended the plans for approval, and that they be submitted to Lord Mostvn, and afterwards to the Local Government Board, for observations and approval. "W ith regard to the proposed houses at Greenfield, it was stated that the Talacre estate was prepared to sell a piece of land on Bagillt road, Greenfield, at an agreed price, and it was recommended that a deputation meet Mr. p, H. Cave, the agent, in regard to the pro- posal. Mr. Petrie moved the confirmation of the minutes, and explained several matters men- tioned. Mr. S. Williams seconded the proposition, which was carried. The recommendation to refer the plans of the Moetyn houses to Lord Mostyn for his observations and afterwards to the Local Government Board was adopted on the pro- Position of Mr. Petrie, seconded by Mr. Gaskell. TENDERS AND TRAFFIC. The tenders for the supply and cartage of road material in the Holywell and Mold districts as recommended by the committee for adoption were presented. Mr. Petrie said he opposed one thing, "I and that was the traction from Holywell Junction to Halkyn. The engine, etc., was about 50 tons weight. They had protested against the County Council using such heavy-weight traction for their own work. He considered the District Council should refuse the tender and accept that from Holy well town in lieu of that to Holywell Junc- tiori. He thought they should petition the County Council to do away with those heavy traction engines. He thought it would not he wise to accept that tender, and suggesed that the Council should reconsider it. He proposed that the tender be accepted as from Holywell Town instead as from Holy- well Junction. The difference was 6d. per ton more. Mr. Reynolds seconded the proposition, which was carried. Mr. Wilfrid Astburv said his attention had been called to the Moel Arthur road and its bad condition. The tender for stone from the quarry was a little less than from other quarries, but the cost of the repair of the road would be considerable. Mr. W. Williams: Should not this be brought before the Mold Highway Commit- tee ? Mr. Astbury replied that it was thought it would be better to bring it before the full Council. The Holywell Surveyor said it would cost R50 for material for the repair of that road, exclusive of labour. It was stated that the tender was asked for granite—the Moel Arthur stone was not granite. There was no grey granite in Flintshire. Mr. Gaskell: It is not actually granite, but it is a granite stone. m The Surveyor said it took 113 tons of stone to put the road in repair after last year's work. The road was only used for agricultural purposes and the quarry. The Clerk said it was a public road, and was not used exclusively for the quarry and the few farms. Mr. Gaskell proposed and Mr. Petrie see- onded that the recommendation to accept the tender for Moel Arthur stone be accept- ed. The proposition was carried. THE CLASSIFICATION OF ROADS. The Clerk reported upon the Conference with the County Council at Mold, on the classification of roads for the Road Board, and referred to the system of classifying district roads so that there would be no confusion as to the class in comparison with the County Council roads. He pointed out that in the Holywell District Council area there were 300 miles of road. In supplying the information for the classification there would be required a minute census of traffic in the neighbourhood, and it was suggested that the road men should make the census. The schedule of traffic was read by the Clerk, and drew the remark from Mr. T. C. Roberts that the roadmen would not be capable of discriminating on motor and ve- hicular traffic in the way required by the Road Board. Mr. Petrie: That is my opinion on the matter. It was agreed that the Road Board Com- mittee meet and consider the reports. GREENFIELD WATER. The suggestion was made that the water on from Top Houses well be piped to Bryn- celyn. The water was not used now as the I houses were not now inhabited. It was decided that the question be de- ¡ ferred for the present. THE GREENFIELD PUMPS. I A letter was received from the Holywell Parish Council, coplaining on the condition of the several pumps and suggesting that they should be overhauled by a competent man. Mr. Petrie said the pumps were being broken and some steps should be taken to protect them. It was decided to draw the attention of the police to wilful damage. MYNYDD BYCHAN: PETITION TO REPAIR. A letter was received from the Clerk to the County Council drawing attention to the petition of the people of Mynydd Bych- an that it was the duty of the Council to maintain and repair Mynydd Bychan Lane. The County Council had appointed a. Com- mittee of Inquiry and requested that the District Council be represented at the In- quiry. The suggestion was adopted, and the Clerk was appointed, to whom was dele- gated the defence of the Council in what they had done in the matter. THE NEWMARKET RAILWAY. The London and North-Western Railway gave notice of intended application to the Light Railways Commission for a renewal of the Order to make a Light Railway from Dyserth to Newmarket. The difficulties connected with the scheme were done away with, and the work would proceed immedi- ately the renewal was obtained. The Council agreed to give assent to the application. BAGILLT POOL The Solicitors to Messrs. W atkins, Parker and Co., wrote declining to accept the terms offered by the Council in respect to the Dee Bank Fishing Pool. They would not derive any compensating advantage in the way the L. and N.-W. Railway Co. would. PORT SANITARY AUTHORITY RE- PRESENTATION. The Clerk to the Chester Port Sanitary Authority wrote pointing out that in con- sequence of the death of Mr. S. Lloyd, and the resignation from the Council of Mr. Wm. C. Pickering, there were two vacan- cies on the authority. It was decided that the appointments be made.
Ormskirk Town Council on Tuesday night decided to take a census of the bedrooms in the town with a view to dealing with over- crowding in small houses.
Holywell Board of Guardians. At a meeting of the Holywell Board of Guardians on Friday, there were present:— Mr Jas. Prince (chairman), Mr. J. Petrie (vice-chairman), Mrs. Johnson Jones, Mrs. R. Jones, Mrs. Humphry Williams, Miss White, Rev. Dr. Oliver, Capt. J. Tudor Williams, Messrs. Wm. Astbury, W. H. Lloyd, Wm. Williams, S. Williams, Wm. Evans, Henry Powell, Peter Evans, Edw. Jones, WTm. Hughes, John Roberta, T. C. Roberts, S. Reynolds, Edw. Evans, R. Ll. Davies, E. Matthews, with Mr. P. Harding Roberts (clerk), Mr. W. H. Roberts (assis- tant clerk), and the Relieving Officers. THE HOUSE. There were 198 inmates is the House last Board day. Admitted since, 16; discharged 17; died, 2; number remaining 198, twelve more than for the corresponding period last year. During the fortnight 101 vagrants were relieved, the same number as for the same period last year. NOT THE MEDICINE. In an application for relief on behalf oi a widow and family from Connah's Quay, it was stated that the husband died suddenly. The widow had been allowed £ 10 from the Smelters' Union. The Chairman, referring to the case, said the man was "on the booze," and after drinking a lot went home and said, "I am thirsty," and drank a bottle of medicine he had had. Mrs. Williams: He didn't die from the medicine. Mr W. H. Lloyd The verdict was "Nat- ural Causes." Relief was granted. PROFESSIONAL MAN AS INMATE. The Master reported that on Tuesday night a man who described himself as a 0 medical man, applied for admission, stating that he was fifty-two years of age and quite destitute, and could walk no further. The previous day he had been discharged from St. Asaph Workhouse Infirmary, where he had been a patient for five months. He stated he was interested in some property at Bootle, and that it was in the hands of lawyers pending its sale. Meantime he had no money coming in, and was destitute. When he came in he said he only wanted a few days' rest, and would then resume his journey. The Master admitted he had received a letter from a firm of lawyers at Birmingham confirming the man's statements, and the man promised to pay 10s. a week for his keep at the house when he got his money. lie also stated he had spent £10,000 in an invention with the Admiralty, and that it had turned out a failure. The action of the Master in allowing the man to remain in the house was confirmed. FINANCE. The balance in the Treasurer's hands was shown to be C.1,599 7s. 5d. cheques required for C385 16s. 2d.; balance remain- ing £ 1,213 lls. 3d. Relief was granted as follows:—Mold District, £100-367 persons; Holywell District, £ 80—312 persons; Whit- ford District, £ 75—264 persons. DISREGARDED ADVICE. Mr. Petrie mentioned a case in which a doctor and himself had advised a man to enter the house for proper treatment. He felt confident if the man would enter the house and be treated in the shelters, he would be cured in a short time. He did not quite see why they should be set at de- fiance because the man said he will not come into the house. It would be for the man's own good. He suggested that the officer be instructed to tell the man that the relief would not be renewed. The Chairman Is he an insured person ? Mr. Petrie Yes, he got insurance benefit for 26 weeks, but that had now run out. I The Chairman said he should be handed over to the Tuberculosis officer of the county. Mr. Petrie If properly treated the man would soon be well again. The Clerk was desired to write to the medical officer in regard to the man, and the relief was renewed for a fortnight. DISAPPEARANCE OF WATER SUPPLY. The Master drew attention to the dis- appearance of the water in the draw well supply in the Cottage Home. He did not know the actual cause of the disappearance. It was decided to investigate the matter. THE NEW INFIRMARY. I The Clerk of the Works (Mr. R. Jones) 0 reported upon the progress of the new in- firmary. The installation of the electric supply was proceeding satisfactorily. 0 DISPOSAL OF AN INMATE. Miss White moved that the resolution of the 2211d March to send an inmate named Metcalfe to a home be rescinded. She pointed out that they were building a new infirmary at a cost of P.8,000, where such cases could be treated, and now when it was nearing completion the Guardians proposed to send a man away to an institution at a cost of 10s. a week. She thought the infir- mary would be the proper place for him. Further, the opinion was expressed thai if the man was examined by a specialist there might be a prospect of him being cured. The Chairman said when the man was asked if the specialist said that his leg could be taken off quite safely, he would agree to have that done. He did not say he would not consent to the amputation, nor definitely that he would. He imagined that the man would consent that his leg be examined. On the suggestion of the Rev. Dr. Oliver it was decided to rescind the resolution and refer the whole matter to the House Com- mittee. ASYLUM VISITORS. The suggestion was made that the Board appoint an Asylum Committee. The follow- ing were appointed:—Mrs. Jones (Mold); Messrs. D. Hughes, W. H .Lloyd, H. Powell, W. Evans and the Assistant Clerk. WELSH POOR-LAW CONFERENCE. Miss White, as one of the representatives attending the North and South Wales Poor- Law Conference, gave a report upon the work of the conference and referred to the proceedings in connection with the working of the Mental Deficiency Act, the boarding- out of children, and the importance of Guardians' work. The Chairman also referred to the dis- cussions, and the Clerk, in his remarks, said there were some Boards lacking in pro- gressiveness, and others were not alive to their obligations. He was pleased with his own Union; he felt they were alive to the importance of the duties. The Mental De- ficiency Act was compulsory and would im- pose responsible duties and involve expense, but it would do away with one of the causes (if pauperism, not so immediate in its effect, but in 25 years it would be a living proof of the advantage of dealing with the Men- tally Deficient. It was the first joint con- ference, and lie hoped further conferences would be arranged and be as successful. He was proud of the lady Guardians from the Holywell district, for it was generally spoken about that two lady guardians dis- tinguished themselves in their contributions If they were not a progressive Board, they would not have the opportunities of letting other Boards see how alive they were to the responsibilities placed upon them. ❖
LITERARY. The "Windsor" for June. Several new features distinguish the June Windsor Magazine" as the first number of a new volume, and give promise to an important and varied programme for the ensuing half-year. A new series of roman- tic stories from diplomatic life, for instance, is begun by that greatly-popular novelist, Justus Miles Forman, whose former "Wind- sor serials, The Garden of Lies" and The Quest," and his many short stories, have established him as one of the modern writers whom the reading-public most de- lights to honour. The opening story of the new series, The Countess Alia," is a drama of powerful emotional interest presented with the author's characteristic charm of style and treatment. It is finely illustrated by G. C. Wilmshurst. Two very entertain- ing pieces of comedy, in the form of short stories, are contributed by W. L. George and Albert Kinross, and a large instalment of Sir H. Rider Haggard's fascinating rom- ance from the earlier career of Allan Quart- ermain, The Holy Flower," carries that strenuous drama of African adventure to a further point of interest. Dornford Yates and Edgar Wallace contribute complete stories as ingenious and entertaining as any that have yet represented their distinguish- ed talents in the earlier programme of the preceding numbers, and a further episode in The White Horses" confirms the success already achieved by Halliwell Sutcliffe's pic- turesque romance from English history. An important series of articles is inaugurated with an account of University College, Lon- don, which is to be followed by other ar- ticles on King's College, the later develop- ments now incorporated as Loudon Univer- sity, and the principal University Institu- tions of the great provincial centres. Ano- tlier article of timely interest deals with the Russian Movement in modern music. The fine-art feature consists of a record of the career of the work of that fine artist and brilliant colourist, John Pettie, R.A., eighteen of whose pictures are reproduced.
The Kinmel MSS. Rare Works I There are many details of interest in the report which the Governors of the National Libiary of Wales received at Aberystwyth from the Librarian (Mr. John Ballinger) on the Kinmel Manuscripts which have become now national possessions. The collection of manuscripts has been bought from the trus- tees of the late Mr. H. R. Hughes, Kinmel Park, Abergele, Lord Lieutenant of Den- bighshire. The negotiations for the collection of Kin- mel MSS, said Mr. Ballinger, had been in progress for a considerable time, owing to 1 the necessity of applying to the court for power to sell. The MSS. were valued by Sir George IVti-iier, 1).Litt., late keeper of MSS. in the British Museum, foi the Kin- mel trustees, and by Mr. J. II. Davies, M.A., on behalf of the National Library. It is pleasant to be able to record that the independent valuations of these gentlemen were so near in the aggregate that no diffi- culty was experienced in agreeing to a sum which was mutually satisfactory. Colonel Hughes, the present owner of Kinmel, and C, his co-trustees, have met the library in a fair and friendly way throughout the nego- tiations. The collection comprises 131 volumes in manuscript, and 32 printed books not in the National Library were also included in the sale. The manuscripts were brought to- gether mainly, if not entirely, by the late Mr H. R. Hughes, who purchased the collec- tion of John Williams, of Beaumaris, and the collection of the late Miss Angharad Llwyd, of Caerwys, and later of Tyn y Rhyl. To these Mr. Hughes added a number of manu- scripts from various sources. Mr. Hughes's special subjects were heraldry and geneal- ogy, but he took a keen interest in all that related to the history and topography of North Wales. His collection naturally re- fleets his own tastes, and is therefore strong in heraldry and genealogy. The MSS. of Angharad Llwyd are com- prised in fifty-four thick 4to folio volumes, representing the life work in collecting and copying of that industrious lady, who ap- pears to have commenced her work at the age of nineteen or twenty, and to have pur- sued it for nearly sixty years. She was able to bring together a considerable number of original documents, mainly relating to the counties of Flint and Denbigh, which but- for her care of them would in many cases have been destroyed or lost. She also made copies or extracts from valuable MSS. in private collections, which are no longer ac- cessible, and also from manuscripts at Pen- iarth and elsewhere. RARE BOOKS. The printed volumes comprise a number of rare books privately printed, mostly is- sued in very limited editions as The Welsh Traveller, or the Unfor- tunate Welshman," by Nathaniel Crouch, edited by J. O. Halliwell (Phillipps), Lon- don, for the editor, 1860, duo. pp. 45. Thirty copies printed. "The Welsh Looking Glass, or Thoughts on the State of Religion in North Wales," by a person who travelled through that country in 1811. London, 1812, foolscap 8vo, pp. 52. "A Minute Account of the People of Anglesey in the Reign of James I." from a MS. edited by J. O. Halliwell (Philips). London, for private circulation, 1860. Crown 8vo. pp. 57.

The following item is of special interest, being the first independent atlas of the Priiicil)alitv The Principality of Wales (Exactly des- cribed) In a compleat set of Maps of all its Countys Wherein are Expressed the chief roads and distances in each county with the names and limits of every Hun- dred Being very usefull for Gentlemen and Travellers; Printed and sold by Thomas Taylor Map and Printseller at the Golden Lyon over against Serjeants Inn in Fleet Street, where are sold all sorts of the best Maps and French Dutch and Italian Prints at Reasonable Rates."
POOR-LAW INSPECTOR ON THE MENTALLY DEFICIENT. Mr. R. H. Williams, poor law inspector for Wales and Monmouthshire, addressing the St. Asaph Board of Guardians, on Fri- day, offered what he termed a little word of comfort to the ratepayers. Since 1906, he said, the cost of outdoor relief had gone down by £ 1,045, which, he thought, they must attribute largely to the burden of what were now old-age pension cases being taken off their hands. For the last four or five years he had been trying to encourage boards of guardians in North Wales to join hands in the matter of the mentally de- ficient, and, had that been done before now, those bodies would have been in a much better position to-day in regard to the treat- ment of the mentally deficient. It was very necessary that boards of guardians should form themselves into a joint committee covering a large area for the purpose of the new Act, and, in order to obviate unnecess- arily large expenditure, he also advocated co-operation with the county councils as far as possible.
FRENCH COUNTESS KILLED ON RAILWAY. The Comtesse de Robien, nee De la Motte, was the victim of a fatal accident while changing trains at Le Mane Station. She was crossing the line, when she was knock- ed down by the Paris train and killed in- stantaneously.
Scene at Caergwrle. TWO LIVERPOOL YOUNG MEN IN TROUBLE. At a special Police Court at Mold on Monday, before Capt. Lloyd, R.N., nd Mr. H. J. Roberts, Mark Cunningham labour- er, 14, Scirving street, Kirkdalc Road, Liverpool, was charged with dru enness and disorderly conduct and assault on police, and Frank Broughton, 65, Beckett-street, Kirkdale, Liverpool, was charged with drunkenness and disorderly conduct. P.C. W. H. Hughes stated that at 6.15 p.m. on Sunday evening he was on duty with P.C. George Lewis near to the Bridge Inn, Caergwrle, when he saw the prisoners coining down the road and making for the Bridge Inn. He advised them to go to the station and to take the next train to Liver- pool. They went towards the station. Both men were very drunk, and they were walk- ing arm-in arm. Shortly afterwards he saw I them at the door of the Bridge Inn, refus- ing to leave. He and P.C. Lewis took them into custody. On the way to the Police Station Cunningham became very violent, butting him in the face and behaving like a madman. He had to get assistance. Both men used disgraceful language. Robert Thomas Richards, water bailiff on the Alyn, said he was in Caergwrle on Sun- day evening at the time in question. He saw the prisoners, who were drunk and us- ing bad language. He assisted P.C. Hughe.s to take them to the Police Station. Cun- ningham butted him (witness) in the face and kicked him on the shin. P.C. George Lewis also gave evidence. He said the prisoners were drunk and walk- ing arm in arm. They were refused drink at the Bridge Inn, and lie and P.C. Hughes advised them to clear off. The men would not go, so they took them to the Police Station. Cunningham was fined 5s. and costs, and Broughton 2s. 6d. and costs.
Profitable Poultry I Culture. BY RALPH R. ALLEN, Lecturer to the Herts County Council; Editoi of Monthly Hints on Poultry," &c. (All rights reserved.) A SUCCESSFUL BREEDING SEASON. (Continued.) I (Readers are particularly requested to note that this series of articles commenced with the first issue in January. In order to obtain their full value, the earlier articles should be read in conjunction with the cur- rent one.) VENTILATION DURING INCUBATION. Under this heading many incubators are lamentably weak. During the process of incubation the development germs absorb oxygen and emit carbon dioxide, or carbonic acid gas as it is more commonly known. If the latter is allowed to accummulate it stands to reason that the germs are weaken- ed in fact, a well-known American expert, Professor Horace Atwood, states: It is my impression that bowel trouble and non- absorption of the contents of the yolk-sac— two very common ailments of incubator chicks—are frequently caused by lack of fresh air in the incubating chamber during the hatch." Plenty of fresh air, then, is necessary; but even ventilation can be over- done. This brings us to THE MOISTURE QUESTION. Too much ventilation means that the eggs will evaporate too quickly, causing the chicks to dry fast to the shell, producing cripples and destroying others. Vice versa, if sufficient evaporation does not take place, the chicks are weaklings, and have insuffi- cient room to break their shell and so make good their escape. The difficulty, then, ¡ that confronts us is, What is the happy medium as regards evaporation during in- cubation to produce best results ? More at- tention has been paid to the solution of this in the United States of America than in this country. Over there it has been brought down to a hard and fast rule, whilst with us it has been left to the skill (or lack of it) of the operator, with about 50 per cent. of < luck. I cannot do better than reproduce an • extract from bulletin No. 73 which was is- j sued by the U.S.A. Government, portions of I which have been quoted by Professor Hor- j ace Atwood, in an able article which he contributed to the "Reliable Poultry Jour- nal" on this subject. Experiments which I have personally con- ducted coincide with these results but they have gone more deeply into the matter than time and opportunity have permitted me. The extract from Bulletin No. 73 is as follows LOSS IN WEIGHT OF EGGS DURING NATURAL INCUBATION. "Artificial incubation is rapidly assuming immense importance not only on the large poultry farms where all of the hatching is done by incubators, but thousands of people who keep a few hens find that it is easier to hatch by artificial methods. Artificial incubation would be more widely used if poultrymen had some simple and reliable method of determining whether the eggs, while incubating, are receiving the proper amount of ventilation, and at the same time are not drying up too rapidly. A proper and uniform temperature can usually be secured in most modern makes of incuba- tors, but at the present time operators rely almost entirely upon experience to deter- mine whether the eggs are kept sufficiently moist and are receiving enough ventilation for the best results. It is true that charts have been con- structed showing the proper size of the air- cell for each day of the incubating period, but in using a chart considerable experience and good judgment are necessary, because the apparent size of the air-cells in individ- ual eggs may vary considerably from each other in the same incubator, and the aver- age size of the air-cells on any particular day may depart quite widely from the nor- mal without an inexperienced operator real- ising that the incubation is not progressing in a satisfactory manner. In addition, the air-cells may be of proper size, and yet the embryos may perish either on account of an insufficient amount of oxygen, or because the gases resulting from the growth of the em- bryos are not carried away with sufficient rapidity." (To be continued). (Any enquiries concerning poultry-keep- ing addressed to our expert, Ralph R. Allen, Sawbridgeworth, Herts, will be answered through these columns free, but those requiring a postal answer direct, or sending birds for post-mortem examination, must remit half-crown postal order.)
